In the Jewish tradition, we prepare for the Day of Atonement by adding a psalm to the daily morning and evening service, a psalm that is recited at no other time of the year. For forty days before Yom Kippur and for ten days afterw

We are often afraid to try because we don?t trust ourselves to get over the disappointment of failing. Even worse, we are afraid of what other people will think of us if we fail. Ours is a culture that worships winners, even if they cheat to win, and scorns losers despite their admirable qualities.

the experience of having been rejected, whether for a job or for a lasting personal relationship, teaches us a very valuable lesson: We are strong enough to survive being rejected. A broken heart is like a broken leg, and a bruised ego is like a bruised arm. We hurt but we heal.

the poet Tennyson wrote ??Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all,? I imagine he meant that the feeling of being in love is such an exhilarating one that a person would not want to go through life without experiencing it, even if it did not last. But I find another level of meaning in his words. Isn?t it true that it is by loving and losing, by rejecting and being rejected, that we ultimately find the person we are most suited to share a life of love with?

the need for love, the sense of loss when we are deprived of it, is so overwhelming that for many people, life itself loses all savor without it. It is more than a craving for sex, for a warm body to sleep next to. It is the need to know that you are cherished, that someone thinks you are special.

There is an old proverb that says, ?If one person calls you a donkey, ignore him. If two or three people do, buy yourself a saddle.? You can ignore one person?s rejection as stemming from his problems more than yours, but if you keep getting the same message time after time, there might be a reason to take it seriously.

In much the same way, the person who rejects you in a personal relationship, whether by not pursuing a courtship or by initiating a divorce, might understand you better than you understand yourself and might see you more clearly than you see yourself.

Love and work are the two sources of emotional reassurance whose loss we fear so much that we will go without food or sleep to gain and hold on to them. They seem to be such different things, but they have been linked in two important speeches, uttered thousands of years apart.

Love and work. They don?t seem to belong in the same sentence, let alone in the same discussion, an examination of the parts of our lives whose possible loss terrifies us. But, in fact, they are the two primary sources of the emotional nourishment we need to feel cherished and to live our lives with enthusiasm and confidence. That is why the fear of rejection, the prospect of losing our job or of no longer feeling loved, is perhaps the most shattering of all fears.

We desperately need the reassurance that we are cherished, that someone somewhere thinks we are special, and if we sense that we don?t have it or may be losing it, we will do desperate things to get it and hold on to it. William James once wrote, ?No more fiendish punishment could be devised ? than that one should be turned loose in society and remain absolutely unnoticed by all the members thereof.?

An unforgettable story from the Holocaust tells of a group of Jewish inmates in a Nazi concentration camp. It was the first night of Hanukkah, the winter holiday that recalls the victory of the weak over the powerful and the few over the many in the second century B.C.E. Hanukkah always falls at the darkest time of the year, and Jews mark it by lighting candles against the cold and dark. Holiday celebrations were forbidden in the camp, but one man saved a bit of the bread from his evening meal, dipped it in grease from his dinner bowl, fashioned it into an impromptu candle, said the appropriate prayer, and lit the bread. His son said to him, ?Father, that was food you burned. We have so little of it. Wouldn?t we have been better off eating it?? The father replied, ?My son, people can live for a week without food, but they cannot live for one day without hope.?

Even people who are well beyond the age of bearing children can make a viable human future more likely by doing things today that will bear fruit long after they are no longer around to see them. They can advocate for better schools, strive to eliminate diseases, work to limit the using up of natural resources so that future generations will not lack them.

For human beings as for no other creature, the act of bringing a child into this world is more than a biological event. It affirms our belief that the past is worth passing on to the future, and that the future, the world that will be here after we are gone, is worth investing our care in.

I would differ with Weigel?s analysis. I see the decline in fertility stemming not from a rejection of the past but from a rejection of the future, not a flight from Europe?s religious roots but a lack of faith in humanity?s ability to create a world fit to raise children in. People are afraid to see their children grow up in a world of cruelty and conflict, along with the temptation of addictive drugs and shortages of the essentials of life.

in a recent survey, European women were found to be having families well below replacement level, at a rate that leads demographers to calculate that the next generation will have one-third fewer people than in their parents? time. One writer refers to this trend as ?Europe?s demographic suicide.? Catholic theologian George Weigel, in his provocative book The Cube and the Cathedral, sees the decline as due to a lack of faith in the future caused by Europe?s rejection of its religious past. He writes, ?The failure to create a human future in the most elemental sense?by creating a successor generation?is surely an expression of a broader failure: a failure of self-confidence. That broader failure is no less surely tied to a collapse of faith in the God of the Bible.?

Choosing to conceive and bear a child is a theological statement, a way of saying that this is a world worth bringing a child into. It is an endorsement of the future, even by people who have found the past unacceptably painful. Children carry the promise of seeing and doing things differently than life-weary adults would.

It would be a world without love, without charity, without joy or forgiveness, a world in which no prayers of gratitude would be spoken and no wishes for a better future articulated, a world without any of the qualities we associate with God and made real on earth by the only creature described as fashioned in the image of God.

I don?t believe that the future has been determined in advance. We are not moviegoers watching a film that has already been shot and edited while we sit there wondering how it will turn out. We are the actors and directors, not the audience. We get to determine the ending. If the world were to end, it would be because of human folly, not God?s determination to make it happen.

All we can control is how well we respond to the changes, and on that question the Bible offers us two models. One is Lot and his wife, so afraid of an unknown future that they prefer to remain captives of a corrupt and limiting present. The other is Lot?s uncle Abraham and Lot?s cousin Jacob, each summoned to leave a relatively comfortable situation and step into a world being born, armed only with the confidence born of God?s promise, ?Do not fear, for I will be with you and your life will be a blessed one.?

In the premodern world, salt was used not so much to flavor food as to preserve it, to keep it from changing and spoiling. To live preserved in salt is the fate of people who are so bound to the past or so unsure of their ability to cope with the future that they continue to do what they have always done, even when it no longer fits the new circumstances in which they live.

It is intimidating to have to change the way you do things because your world is changing around you. But it is far worse to live in a rapidly changing world and to be afraid to change with it. Are you afraid of change? Be more afraid of being unable to change.
